3 Parks near Carthage, Missouri

Great place to rest and relax. We stopped in for an overnight on the road and will return again when passing through. Located near the highway and is a small husband & wife ran RV park. The site we stayed at was very well shaded and near the pond and gazebo and laundry and showers and bathroom floors are that being upgraded. Washers $1.25 and dryers are $1, there are two of each. The park is very quiet and the best nights rest we've had on the road in a while. We will return if we are in the area again. - C1775

O.K. park not to far from freeway, not much noise. Roads and sites are gravel with shade trees. Sites are large enough for 37 foot RV and toad. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) good. We would stay here again. - kmgulf

This was an overnight stop for us on a westward swing. After reviewing other campgrounds in the area, we would choose this campsite again. The sites were level and large. The campground manager took me to look at several sites first and then led us to the place. Yes, the sites are gravel, but so what; it drains well in the rain. There are lots of trees, so it may be difficult if you rely on satellite for TV, but we found enough over the air stations from nearby Joplin. WiFi was free, though a bit slow. We used the restrooms and showers and found them clean and comfortable. They had the water on a softener, so it was very soft. It was also a bit on the salty side for taste, but had no bad smell or flavor. Downsides are: some sites are a bit tight to get into, but that is not bad as there are plenty of trees for shade. Interstate road noise is there in the background, though a small hill between the campground and interstate help blunt some of the sound. Finally, be warned, the approach from the north comes at you quickly. There is no Large sign by the road. We went south and turned around in a large lot (warning sign--no turns, but we did anyway) and got back fine. The park looks a bit run down, but I think is a work still in progress. As stated earlier, given other options, we would stay here again. - Too-wow

Actually this park is just off I-49 off the Fir Street exit. Rough paved roads with gravel sites. We had problem with a 50amp breaker at the pedestal and they replaced the breaker rather quickly and we had no furher problems.
Staff was super friendly and had great sense of humor which made check in nice. Weekends they will cook hot dogs and burgers for you for a reasonable price. Park was pretty empty with a lot of folks just spending the night. The park has a rustic feel. We were far enough away from I-49 not to hear the traffic noise. Walmart and restaurants are just 2 miles away. - rv4rob

Very nice rural park on I-44. Very convenient to the interstate. The sites were spacious and the park was surrounded by fields. The campground hosts served hot dogs and hamburger dinners for $5 each. Very convenient. We received a 30% military discount. Very nice. We only stayed one night, but I would stay longer on a trip to rest and relax. - Alicenpete

This is our 2nd time at Coachlight, we have family in Carthage and Joplin and the location is convenient, near I-44 & I-49, no road noise. Park is easy to enter & exit. Hook ups all work well, we ran 3 ACs on the 50 amp. Sites a re gravel, level, spacious enough for 4 slides and tow. We were in lower section, upper was full. Lower had no shade trees and Directv worked well. Upper section has beautiful shade trees and large area (not fenced) for pets. 3 wifi stations in park, so signal was great. Coachlight did repair work on our coach on last visit and we were very happy with work and how accommodating there were. - CupcakeRIA

Friendly staff. Escorted to our site. We did not need help but he seemed willing to help if needed. They seem particular, which is probably why the campground is in such good shape.
About ¾ of the campground is sloped and the sites are terraced. They are mostly long pull-through sites, but many of them are narrow so that you would not have enough room to set up chairs, etc. under your awning. Less than half of these sites had a concrete patio. In this area there were large, mature trees providing shade.
The remaining ¼ of the campground, was a lower, flat area with no trees and flat sites. All of these sites were large and had cement patios.
Great Wi-Fi . Several boosters in campground. No extra charge.
We could not hear hardly any at all despite proximity to freeway.
Laundry room has 2 washers and 4 dryers with a long folding table.
Rules of note: No dog pens at sites. No clotheslines. You are free to wash your rig.
Nice for overnight and would be good for longer term if there was a reason to be in this area.
There were several longer term residents as evidenced by wooden stairs/decks, extra large propane bottles, etc. All were well kept. - jvkATX

I like this park. The upper section gives you shade in the trees and the lower section is in the sun with good size pull throughs. Would give it a 10 if sites were paved. Roads are paved but sites are crushed stone. - peddy dick
